RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Citing a new poll from Rasmussen Reports, incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan is appealing to supporters to donate to a race she characterizes as "tightening up."
Rasmussen recently reported polling data that showed Hagan with 48 percent to Tillis' 46 percent -- within the margin of error.
Hagan faces a tight race against Republican House Speaker Thom Tillis. Libertarian Sean Haugh is also in the race.
Hagan's October 20 e-mail reads:
Rasmussen moved our race to a “Toss Up.”
Friend -- it doesn’t get much closer than this. And with two weeks to go in this election, we need to be at the top of our game.
11 days left in October. Can you give $5 or more to help us reach our $1 million goal?

Outside interests are spending more against me than any other Senator in the country -- $35 million and counting.
I am their number one target. And your contributions, friend, are the only way our team can fight against them.
The Koch brothers want to buy this Senate seat for their ally, Speaker Tillis. With polls this close, they think their money will do the trick.
Not on our watch. As long as we reach $1 million, we can keep fighting their attacks. Give what you can right now.
The polls are close. But they’ve been that way all along.
We know how to win this race -- together.
Thank you for all of your help.
